Black Tank Valve Leak

While loading up for this wkds 1st camping trip in the new 22FB, I noticed the drain pipe cap leaking. We just treated the black tank yesterday as instructed and it's been leaking while sitting in the barn last night as well. I checked the T-handle to make sure it was good and seated, it kinda has me concerned! Any ideas????

It sounds like the valve is not seated properly. It could be from construction debri when the holes were drilled for fittings in the tank. I think I would have a 5 gal bucket handy for when you pull the cap off.

Good idea clutch, I sure wouldn't want an episode of RV (Robin Williams LOL) scene on my first poopoo dump! Thanks for your input!

You may have a piece of debris not letting the valve blade fully seat. I had your symptom once - dumped the tank, cleaned out w/ lots of water and a wand down the toilet, backflushed w/ my Flush King, and that seemed to take care of the issue. I always now put a bucket under the pipe end when removing the cap just in case

I was thinking about leaving the cap off while at camp with a bucket under it so I can monitor the leakage. I wonder if that would catch the campsite host attention? Now the flush is a good point mikefos, I will definetely give that a shot!

i bought and use one of these at the connection between the abs pipe and the cap. it can save you, if you can see it's there.
